Pays d'Ouche

The Pays d'Ouche is a wooded plateau southeast of Évreux in the department of Eure, one of two departments in the Haute-Normandie region, extending into the neighboring Orne department in the Basse-Normandie region. The Risle River and other tributaries of the Seine flow through this area. Its chalky soil is not agriculturally productive. The principal town of the area is Conches-en-Ouche, population 5,352 (INSEE, 1999), on the River Rouloir.
